    I've actually got something for sale that would do exactly that A Creative Labs Audigy 2NX...does 5.1 surround, optical inputs/outputs, connects via the USB port.

    PM me if you're interested

    You can always get a sound blaster extigy. Btw, what kind of dolby surround setup are you looking at getting?

    Are you going optical or analog?

    For a laptop I would suggest this:

    I hate Creative for music but oh well...

    Well, he was asking about a soundcard for his laptop so the Audigy 2 is out of the question and if you think Creative makes the best MUSIC audio card you're flippin' nuts...

    I use an Audigy 2 card in my PC and I love the sound. If there are better sounding sound cards out there please list a few. I'm an "audio first" guy and would like to keep my options open.

    Link me if you have any.

    Thanx, Adam

    Re: External sound cards and computer speakers...

    If you are running analog out then most sound cards with the VIA Vinyl chipset will put Creative to shame. I would suggest the Audiotrak Pridigy 7.1LT. The DACs are far better than Creative.

    I just want to state that my GAMING box at home has a Creative Audigy 2 ZS. For gaming there is nothing better at the moment but music is another ball game.

    Any idea what that retails for??
